Pringle Tub ...

Hi Everybody,

As promised earlier this week here is the tutorial to alter those Pringles tubs you have all been collecting

This is the one I made for Isabella and I filled it with chocolate coins for her ... and she loved it.

So here are the instructions for the
Altered Art Treasure Box

In the video I decided to go for a different color scheme and decided on Lilac.

And I lined the box too for an extra special touch.

You may notice some differences between the finished box in the video and the one pictured here.

That is because I couldn't leave things alone and had to add in more finishing touches before I was happy.

So now it is time for you to get out all those tubs you have been saving and start making them really pretty.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts

I have added the video to a  page on my website ...  Card Making Magic so you will need to click the link at the top of the page to view the tutorial

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Lovely crafty project-I'll watch the video tonight after work.


  2. yes this is so pretty and such a good idea. we throw away so many useful packets. i recently made photo albums using cereal boxes and they turned out beautiful. i will have to go and buy (and eat) pringles so i can make one or two. thanks christina. hugs.

  3. Hi Christina
    Love your ideas. The tubs look really pretty - I'm not surprised Isabella was delighted. Will have to have a go.
    Love & best wishes

  9. It always amazes me what can be done with leftover canisters..
    This turned out really nice...I have an canister and I'm going to give a try.
    I'm always losing my crafting glasses so this would be perfect I would be them in before I leave the craft room
    Well done Christina and thanks for the video

  10. How pretty!! Will watch this tonight while I am winding down from my day! Can't wait to learn how to do this!! TFS!

  16. those are so pretty can't get over they started as a pringle can!

  17. I saved several Pringles boxes after Christmas, knowing this would come up somewhere, and guess what, my favourite lady has come up trumps, thank you Christine, I will definitely give it a try.....luv Ursula xx

  18. Christina,
    Thank you so much for the video, I truly enjoyed it. I so love watching you create, and your instructions are clear and concise. Love the little treasure chest...great job to you and your "film crew."

  19. Hi Christina
    What an ingenious idea in recycling something that would be thrown away in the bin...
    Your 2 samples look so pretty & I'm just gonna leap to your Card Making Magic site to watch the video & I'll be having a go at creating one of these..
    Will have to go buy some first & empty the tub out & eat them later....
    Love all your cards that you make Christina, they're always so pretty & Beautiful...

    Crafty Hugs
